Question

Working with Plivo SMS Gateway

Hi, I just had a quick question for anyone who might have experience with this using a Digital Ocean Droplet. I am a student trying to use the Plivo SMS gateway from my droplet to send SMS messages. If you are not familar with Plivo it uses PEAR and HTTP_Request2 to work. I have installed PHP, PEAR, and the HTTP_Request2 package and everything appears to be pointed properly and working from all of my test scripts. Locally I have the Plivo service working perfectly, but the exact same code on the Digital Ocean Droplet is not working. My problem is that its also not giving me any errors, so I am not sure what part of the code is not working. No server, or PHP errors what so ever. I am just curious if there is anything that I need to install to allow the server to send out information/data to the Plivo SMS gateway. I also have already installed the mail services to output mail using PHP and that is working properly. Any information would be great! Thank you in advance.

Try enabling error reporting: <br><pre><?php <br>ini_set(‘display_errors’, 1); <br>error_reporting(-1);</pre>

Also my droplet is a Ubuntu installation.
